New Immersive 'Star Wars' Experience Set for Disney Springs

Downtown Disney in Anaheim, Calif., also will open a Secrets of the Empire attraction

A new “Star Wars” experience, steeped in “hyper reality,” will be opening at Disney Springs later this year.

The new Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire was announced by Lucasfilm, ILMxLAB — which is the Immersive Entertainment division of Lucasfilm — and the VOID on Thursday.

“Through the power of the VOID, guests who step into Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire won't just see this world, they'll know that they are part of this amazing story,” said Curtis Hickman, co-founder and chief creative officer at the VOID.

Officials did not share the exact location of the future VOID Experience Center at Disney Springs, the opening date or how much tickets would cost. A news release said it would be “beginning this holiday season.” It’s a permanent set-up.

Downtown Disney in Anaheim, Calif., also will open a Secrets of the Empire attraction.

Once open, visitors “will move freely throughout the untethered, social, and multisensory experience as they interact and engage with friends, family and ‘Star Wars’ characters,” a news release said.
